Well, one problem here os that you have not tried to build a fanbase, or even interest in your game. If I wasn't a regular Watcher, I would never have heard about your game. And even I don't really know about it. I gatherd that it will probably be some tactical TB strategy RPG hybrid - but thats it.

You are probably afraid of being seen as just another vaporware indie, but I think being more visible has many advantages, and one may be that it becomes easier to recruit. AoDs Oscar started with fan contributions on their forums, and Gareth of the now-suspended Scars of War also recruited Artists through his Forum and blog, although he wasn't quite so lucky in getting someone to stay really longterm.
So IMHO, you should start doing more to make your game known in the Indie community.
